Gators need more from Boynton

The Florida defense is one of the top units in the country, but there’s still something missing from the team. It’s the production from the team’s best scorer. Kenny Boynton is going through one of the worst stretches in his career during the early season, well under his normal point average and shooting percentages. The added responsibility of playing point guard could be slowing him down.
